Like Brad Pitt being adopted into the Addams Family, the tC is an attractive standout in a quirky, unsightly marque of cars. The stubby front and rear, the high door lines and the characteristic backseat window gives the tC a junior-league Infiniti G35 Coupe-like profile. So it looks presentable, but is the tC’s performance a welcome departure from the gutlessness of the xA and xB?
The interior is comfortable and looks great and the outside looks just as great. The younger 20-30 something crowd would be the ones I see driving this car to work, to the club, to school, and anywhere else in the city they plan on going.
After throwing the car around some tight turns and punching the throttle up some steep hills, the one word that describes the tC best is solid. For a car that is priced under 20 grand, the level of composure and refinement is striking.
